Local meat market busier than usual
EAGLE RIVER - Today marks day three of the gun deer season.

Many Northwoods hunters have already filled their tags and are ready to process their deer meat.


People have dropped off more than 60 deer at Prime Choice Meat Market in Eagle River since Saturday.

Store Manager Rick Behrens, says that's more deer than he's used to seeing opening weekend.

"On an average, our deer that we check in here used to be a lot more in the heyday you know. But now if we're getting close, 250 to 300 is usually a pretty good amount," said Behrens.

Behrens also expects even more deer will be brought in through the rest of the week.

"A lot of people that go hunting on Thanksgiving, you know that's kind of a tradition for some families. And so, we'll see some deer come in through there too," said Behrens.

The deer are processed individually to make sure you get your own deer meat back.

Customers can expect to get their deer meat back in vacuum sealed bags within three to four weeks.

Prime Choice Meat Market also accepts whole deer donations which then go to the local food pantry.
